Top Gear, which I’m guessing is probably one of the most pirated shows, ever, has decided not to air on BBC America stateside for another two months, despite already playing on British televisions. I’m sure everybody stateside will be respectful and patient about this.
Around six months ago, I really started dreading the sense that I would have to buy a new phone soon. The iPhone 7 I’ve had in my pocket and hand for the last three years was beginning to have problems charging, and I could no longer use my Lightning connector headphones. It was really pissing me off.
The 2020 Volvo XC90 has been updated with new safety features, Android Auto, a new wool blend interior option, a new mild-hybrid trim level, and apparently refreshed looks. That last update is a little hard to spot, though, so give it your best shot.
It feels like only yesterday we were driving the 2020 Porsche 911 for the first time, and now we already have what appears to be an early peek at the upcoming Porsche 911 Turbo. The wing looks bigger, the rear bumper is a little more featured, and it miraculously still manages to look good in grey.
It’s just another day in sunny New York City, where a visibly decaying piece of the elevated 7 subway train fell down and crashed through the windshield of a moving vehicle in Queens. Luckily, nobody appears to have been seriously injured.
VW is sweating over tariffs between the U.S. and Europe, trade deals with China may finally happen, Lyft may go public, Apple talks autonomy, and all this and more in The Morning Shift for February 21, 2019.
Picture this: you’re in the middle of a deep explanation of hybrid ZF eight-speed transmissions on the floor of the Detroit Auto Show, and the engineer describing how a clutch disengages the hybrid drive of the transmission asks you if you’re aware of a certain feeling you get when “you WOT it,” but you have no idea…
Ferdinand Piëch is basically a godfather of the modern automotive industry, launching Audi into the luxury automaker it is today and turning the Volkswagen Group into a mighty car conglomerate. His son is taking the family name and building electric cars now, apparently.
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz SLC isn’t going to make it beyond this generation, so to celebrate its 23 years with us, it’s returning to its yellow-painted roots and getting a special Final Edition.
There’s an extremely common design trend that may have slipped by right under your nose, slowly taking over seemingly ever new car on the road, one by one. It’s only maybe a couple inches wide at most, and at all four corners of the car. It’s purpose a mystery, until now.
A Virgin Atlantic flight making the grueling journey from Los Angeles to London yesterday hit a ground speed of at least 801 mph, thanks to a streak of fast-moving air in the jet stream over Pennsylvania. You’re probably wondering how, as breaking the sound barrier over land is illegal, but despite surpassing the…
My emotional journey with the newest generation of the Toyota Prius went like this: I hated it for being ugly, then I liked it for being different, and now I’m back to pretty much hating it. But the good news is that fuel economy figures for the 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid are just as good, and that car looks way…
What appears to be the humble Geo Metro, a modern example of dependable, rugged quality (these claims could not immediately be verified), and I can’t think of a better example of its numerous superlatives than its capability of driving with only three wheels, like in this video from Houston.
I remember growing up with Xzibit hosting Pimp My Ride, which I would typically watch late at night in bed when I couldn’t sleep because my pre-teen self had one too many Mountain Dews that day. Today I found something both worse and better. I discovered the UK version of the show.
BMW has been graciously stretching out the death of the rear-wheel drive BMW 1 Series for years now, thankfully, but it’s nearing the end. The BMW 1 Series Finale Edition is anticipated to be the last rear-wheel drive, six-cylinder version of the model ever, and it’s only for the Australian market.
The 2019 Toyota Supra is finally out, but if you thought we were done with the seemingly endless teasers and concept cars, you were sadly mistaken! So here’s another one, called the Toyota Supra TRD Concept, which shows off all of the bits you can buy from the TRD catalog including a spoiler that exaggerates the car’s…
Back in January, General Motors CEO Mary Barra claimed that her company had sold over 200,000 electric vehicles without having to replace a single battery pack. It turns out not only was that incredibly misleading and false, but one unlucky Chevy Bolt owner even had to replace their battery not once, but twice.
Aurora Innovation, the self-driving startup with leadership from Google, Tesla and Uber, just raised over half a billion dollars from investors, including Amazon.
